Shared directory, different views

Every Data Commons Co-op member has different interests, so this collaborative directory has any number of community views. Examples:

Discover the diversity of alternative economic projects that are growing and thriving in North America! This is a collaborative directory, a “Stone Soup” that brings together multiple databases from groups working on alternative economies under many names: the new economy, the cooperative economy, the solidarity economy, and more. Together we are the Data Commons Cooperative. We share our data with each other and the public to build a stronger base of information and grow our movements. Pitch in by joining the co-op. Fish out bits you don't want with our advanced search filters. Mmm, good soup!
